Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9844966A1] The invention concerns a liposuction apparatus (1) comprising an aspirator tip (3) for sucking subcutaneous fat through an intake aperture, the tip (3) having a longitudinal axis and being mounted on a mechanical driving member (20) with an input for an energy source to be connected therein and arranged to generate a movement and transmit it to the tip (3). The invention is characterised in that the tip (3) motion is a nutation comprising a vibrating component perpendicular to the tip (3) axis and a translational component along the tip (3) axis, wherein the translational component has an amplitude less than 1 cm.
